May 1

to be honest, i kind of miss marching against nationalists and racists. a bit of adrenaline, a bit of rebellion, the feeling that you are not alone in this, meeting new interesting people. here in one of the most multicultural cities in the world people are just kissing under the cherry blossom. boring. i hope you enjoyed the May 1, my friends in the Czech Republic.


The Musketeers

A big BBC hit “The Musketeers” is completely filmed in the Czech Republic and produced by half Czech  film crew. These are one of the few things to be proud of: The Czech heritage – landscape and supertalented people, the best in the industry, most of them working for foreign (mostly western) companies.

What Happened?

“That all men are created equal; that we, the People can form a more perfect union. … The capacity to shape our own destiny. That’s why anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues will always fail in the end.”

Goodbye, Mr. President. 🙁

Remembrance Day 2016

Brigadier-Général Guy Chapelaine, Chaplain General: “Ocean to ocean. We come from different backgrounds, from different religions and traditions. But we are first and foremost united in our duty to remember. … May we continue to build the nation where our differences are embrace as strength. Where our workplaces are free from harassment and discrimination. And where we are resolved to see the wellbeing of all peoples who made this land home as well as all those who have made this land both home and place of refuge.” “… The extraordinary price paid in flesh and blood may finally bring about that day when all people of every nation might enjoy the piece and freedom that you wish for all creation. This is what we asked of you, dear Lord.”
